in stanford, florida, lynchberg and fairfax, virginia, columbus, ohio, and manchester, ohio, and it wouldn't be an election without a legal mess in florida. voters reporting lines up to seven hours long at some south florida early polling stations. but at the end of the day, tomorrow, it will all possibly be about ohio. the president holding a slim lead in the buckeye state in the polls. in this exclusive interview with cnn, john boehner of ohio says he believes that his state could just swing red. >> polls don't win the elections, voters do. i've been around ohio. i've done this trip around ohio for a lot of presidential races in the past. and i think ohioans vote with their wallets. that's why i think romney will win on tuesday. >> we're blanketing the battle grounds with our cnn reporters. john berman, of course, following that for us this morning. >> good morning. first up is florida. swing state considered a must win particularly for mitt romney. the most recent polling there has been mixed with some showing a romney lead. some polls showing the president's on top. we're going to turn
, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that

that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had been campaigning in florida with marco rubio and was asked do you agree with what senator rubio was saying on immigration and he hesitated. he said i have got to think about it. i have to wonder if that wasn't a moment that might have changed the course of a lot of things. >> it could be. i think one of the realities here and mary catherine was touching on this. i think you will see core constituencies rush to people like marco rubio and say tell us how you would do this. i think it raises rubio's stature within the party. you have to look at the business community and people in the high-tech sector and wall street who want immigration reform to get the best brains into the country and are willing to make concessions if you tell them we can get the best people here. >> the system is a mess and horribly complex just as most things in the federal government. but this is not some sort of quick fix where you say you are for this and it involves the problems. it's policy were the on issues barack obama would have paid a price or brag

we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida

. victor is on the phone from florida on the independent line. caller: good morning. host: how are you feeling? caller: the radiation is not my kind of therapy, believe me. i want to wish everybody a happy veterans day. i mean it from the soul, not the words that come out of tv. host: when did you serve? caller: from 1948 until 1972. my comment is on the deficit. all the parties have reasons for what is causing the deficit. most of americans know that -- i have cancer, yes. a tumor. it will cost the american tax payers over half a million dollars just for a what i will be going through on chemotherapy and radiation. a few years back, i found that i had implants that cost $285,000. they want to charge me $1,285 for that. i wrote to the state attorney's office to justify that amount of money. nobody answered my question outside of the state attorney's office. that upset me. so i sat down. what would be the best thing that i could do, which i wrote to obama, i wrote to congress, i wrote to all in medicare -- how to solve this health care problem we have? that is the biggest part of the de
's got to stop. they're all doing it. and it's just major corruption. host: fran, jacksonville, florida. yes, we're listening. caller: oh, thank you. i was calling, wanted to know if i heard that excerpt from the wall street journal article correctly, that the president might be relenting on his pledge to not sign anything that didn't have that increase with the upper 1%. host: well, i think it's a little more nuanced than that. it says here again, here's the headline. obama is flexible of highest tax rates. and what it says is that it's not so much that he won't sign anything, it's more of how high the tax rates would go. so does that -- how do you see that? how do you reed that? caller: i would really be disappointed in that, because he's been fighting for that since the beginning. he relented a few years ago in order to save the unemployment insurance for the unemployed people and some other stipulations that were being held hostage by the g.o.p. but he doesn't have to do that any more. and right after he did that, they called that his tax breaks for the wealthy. and he absolutely di
for the popular vote in the national vote happened for ohio and florida, so the lgbt support for obama is bigger and ohio and florida and his winning margin. you can credibly argue that that vote mattered a lot, and if you think about an election where obama loses, ohio and florida, you think about a different election. then i looked at what if romney and obama had more or less split? quite frankly, it has been about that since clinton, roughly 3-1. that is the highest it has been, but quite frankly it has been high all through. what if they split it, more or less evenly, or romney got a little bit more? if romney had won 51%, they would have one of ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the president. and ohio and florida, all he had to do was win a little over 1/3 of the lgbt vote to win. while i do not think that suggests that suddenly in the way be are now talking about like immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy, i do not think it is quite that level of impact, but a little bit of movement in oflgbt vote in key states,
. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
that and does not decide to go for the budget, it will probably be bill nelson from florida who just won reelection. but here is my conspiracy- minded way is going on -- let's say ron wind and decided he really wanted budget and not energy, who would be chairman? mary landrieu -- a complete nightmare for the democrats -- coming from an oil-producing state she is really not in line with most of the party on the issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide not to long ago where i basically said, so, you guys will do everything you can to make sure it does not happen, right? even if patty murray decides not to take budget, you r will ron widen stay there -- their answer was, we do not think we will get to that point. which is estimated will do everything they can to prevent mary landrieu from taking the gavel. but she is close. and any other on the republican side. is the republican leadership wincing at the thought about new ranking republican members doing damage to the agenda? chuck grassley, installed judiciary, and orrin hatch? >> i think both of them have established their bona
latino areas that did not get polled including florida and just saying one party figured it out. the other party didn't. >> if you look at individual stocks and sectors, yesterday you got at the point where you go by sector and not risk on, risk off broader mark. we see that here. financials are seeing softness in pre-market. coal stocks seeing softness. there is a notion that now there will be more reimbursement for patients who previously couldn't pay for their care and so that will be a huge tail wind for these stocks which goes to buy from neutral this morning. >> a couple guys piled on hca. i do feel that you're supposed to sell the medical devices because there's a tax on them. things are playing out the way we would expect. i do think that the market is not understanding the power of what bernanke is doing in housing because you would get the firing of bernanke very quickly, okay, and you're not going to get that now. he's obviously contributed. the rates are down any way. i just think that if you bought bank of america because you thought romney was going to win and that
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
down in florida. what do you say to the family? they say the therapy you did to him as a child led to the suicide as an adult. >> i would say scientifically that would be inaccurate to assume that it was the therapy, but i do grieve for the parents now that you've told me that news. i think that's very sad. >> reporter: according to the american psychiatric association, the potential risk of reparative therapy is great, including depression, anxiety and self-destructive behavior. the association says therapists' alignment with societal prejudices against homosexuality may reinforce the self-hatred already felt by patients. dr. nicolosi says his therapy isn't harmful, and he only treats people who want to change. not true, says ryan kendall. >> it led me to periods of homelessness, to drug abuse, to spending a decade of my life wanting to kill myself. it led to so much pain and struggle, and i want them to know that what they do hurts people. it hurts children. it has no basis in fact. and they need to stop. >> reporter: randi kaye, cnn, los angeles. >> let's get back to the lawsuit
, florida, is evening tore sell it before the end of the year because of the pending fiscal cliff. unless congress acts by year end, capital gains taxes will go up. for homeowners with a lot of equity in their homes, selling now can make a big difference. >> if you're looking for someone who's selling their property at a $10 million sales price and they have a $5 million cost in the property, there's a potential $5 million profit, capital gains being 5% right now. they're estimated to go up to 25% next year. so in theory, there's $500,000 savings for both seller and buy tore get the deal done. >> reporter: even if you have an averaged-priced home, the fiscal cliff negotiations could have a major impact on you. congress could limit the amount of home mortgage interest homeowners can write off their taxes. one proposal from the simpson/bowles commission would cap the deduction at $500,000. lawmakers may also limit tax breaks for second homes. distressed homeowners could also see major changes ahead. the mortgage debt relief act, which waives the tax obligation on portions of the mortgage s

be real. to make matters worse, their polling told them florida and virginia, who states that romney lost were were in the bag. the republican party is left asking itself what went wrong and how they fix it. john bray bender is a republican strategist and top adviser to rick santorum and robert shrum, democratic strategist and columnist for the daily beast. john, you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012, in a general election with barack obama, an african-american, a democrat, and a relatively popular president would create a different electorate than the one you saw say in 2010 or in a primary situation? >> well, i think -- as you know, every poll starts with an assumption. here is who we think is going to show up and vote, therefore that's who we ask the question of. republicans and not just the romney campaign, but republican pollsters all across the country guessed wrong. we didn't see the intensity that there was there for the president, particularly among young voters. we o
includes texas and florida that had been again every aspect of obamacare. that leaves over half of states saying that they are not s yet. which means lack of uniformity. we try to figure out that we predict a lot of people may lose employer-based insurance and have to go to individual based insurance if they can't afford a federal subsidy. i'm concerned that the kind of insurance as that this is the kind that will allow you access to see this doctor whether you are sick or well. i am concerned that it may not pay for high technological solutions on the other end that don't work for everyone. that are brand-new and bells and whistles that are really exciting, personalized medicine, but a very expensive. insurance companies may decide not cover it. and medicare, or that we have talked about, they may decide not to cover it. shannon: these changes are where a consumer in the state of utah -- they would have to shop for your insurance. that is where they will be better than products will be there. so they can set their own, they can allow the feds to come do it, or they can do a kind of a hyb
in 2008, this is one of the biggest democratic wins since fdr. with florida now colored blue, the president had secured a wide electoral surplus and a sizable popular vote margin. now, the popular vote win was made possible by people who lined up in huge numbers to vote in states like louisiana or new york or south carolina, which weren't in play in terms of their electoral votes. they weren't going to be needed. but who were nonetheless determined to cast their ballots for the president. as a result, this president's win was bigger than jfk's in 1960, bigger than richard nixon in 1968, bigger than jimmy carter's in 1976 and bigger than george w. bush's in 2000. no denying it. it was a big win. and as i said before, size does matter. at least when it comes to laying claim to a mandate. so the president may have earned political capital, but what is he going to say about the argument for why he's earned it. why did the electorate overwhelmingly vote to put this president back in the white house? does tuesday's win tell us a story sufficient to explain what america wants? now,
